“NAV Universal APP” on different devices


“NAV Universal APP” on different devices

UNIV APP

“When we talk about Universal APP then we mean that it works on different devices but behaviors are different depending on what device, what OS and etc.”

If we run universal app on windows computer with keyboard attached, then it will show web client interface where is print preview available and from preview direct printing too.

If we run universal app on computer without keyboard (tablet mode), then preview is not available and direct print to, then only saves as pdf and print using available viewer and printer; the same is if used other OS or devices and NOT Windows.”

Differences and Limitations When Developing Pages for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Universal App

Developing for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client is not much different from developing for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, or Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. There are, however, some natural limitations on tablets and phones, such as not having a physical keyboard and mouse, as well as a smaller screen. In addition to this, there are some differences and limitations in developing pages for Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client. The differences and limitations listed are additional to the differences and limitations that exist on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client.

Differences and Limitations Overview

The following table describes some of the most common differences and limitations that you might experience when developing for Microsoft Dynamics NAV Tablet client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Phone client.

Fields in fast tabs Fields in fast tabs on list pages are not shown. Only the repeater control is shown in the content area of the page. Not available. Design List pages to avoid having important columns on the far right of the column list.
